How wonderful is this?!
As discussed in fastcodesign.com’s article “Can a Wildlife Bridge Fix America’s $8 Billion Roadkill Problem?” the safety of wildlife is an ever-present danger — and tragedy — on our highways.
Wildlife overpasses, green bridges, and ecoducts all refer to structures that have been built over roads to allow wildlife to cross safely to the other side of the road. The bridges are for the animals; the animals walk over the road, and the vehicles go through the structure. Here are pictures of a few existing wildlife bridges or ecoducts.
This is a very worthy project that should be adopted as often as possible on major highway systems, don’t you agree?
